Let's Go Participant Ritesh

28 March 2022

Ritesh shared his experience of giving up his car during the pandemic and getting involved in the Let's Go challenge

"Since the pandemic, I have given up my car and started to cycle more seriously and more frequently. Whether it is commuting to work or for leisure, I am free to get on my bike be it in the sun, rain or snow. It is my newfound love; nothing will stop me getting on my bike! In fact, I have actually recorded over 10,000 miles over the last few years. I can't believe it myself! 

My sister recommended BetterPoints to me and I haven't looked back since. I really like the aim of winning prizes, vouchers and encouraging others to give up their cars or reduce their carbon footprint. 

It has been great to see the introduction of the workplace challenge in Leicester and Leicestershire, and to see how many have joined. It's brilliant to see everyone participating and most of all enjoying themselves and getting fitter." - Ritesh

 Thanks for taking part Ritesh, and good luck for the next 10,000 miles of cycling! 🚲
